    The poll was our qualifier for names.

    This is going to have a 2D top down view (like in the image below) instead of the 3D trailing view in LightBike. However DS Media Labs said that there would be an update sometime after the release with a 3D view added.

    I'm really looking forward to this and will definitely get it at the $0.99 introductory price.

    Yes, we are already working on the 3D view update. It will have different camera options and we think you guys will love it. We will be getting this update out very quickly after v1.0 is accepted.

    I just hope this doesn't get pushed into a corner by LightBikes because this view looks a lot better, but people could look at this and go, "wait, I bought that a week ago..." and not buy it. I hope this makes it to the #1 spot...

    Okay, so here is my question, controls. does it control the same way lightbikes does? are there game modes? ultimate enemies? self proclaimed Awsomeness in everylevel?

    Very happy I held off on buying LightBike; this looks quality and I'm happy it's finally close to its release.

    Well done!

    I eat every good light bike game :)
    I hope this one also has some kind of turbo button,
    this is absolutly necessary for strategic 2 or more player gaming.
    Otgerwise it gets very boring. You need to have that element.

    DSMedia labs - as a beta tester I got a weird email about your code for LightBikes was stolen? Care to tell us the full story? I could have sworn it was called NeoRiders in the last version.

    Ahh I am so looking forward to LR. I bought Light Bikes but felt kinda ripped off by the "full" version.

    I love the way DS Media implements their graphics. I fell in love with FLOverload and I am sure to be impressed with LightRiders.

    Good luck DS, doubt you need it tho!

    I am DEFINITELY going to buy this game.

    I'm just wondering if Light Bikes stole most of your sales though, this game looks MUCH better then theirs, but they have had a TON of sales, and I don't know if many people will want to buy two.

    I sure hope it doesn't affect your sales though, as you've obviously put a lot of work into it, and it looks a lot more appealing then the other one.
